      SB: $51.75 (103.5 bb)
      BB: $27.33 (54.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q T
      MP raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) Q 8 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $2, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($7.75) 7 (2 players)
      MP bets $4, Hero raises to $11.25, MP calls $7.25

      River: ($30.25) 6 (2 players)
      MP bets $15, Hero folds

      $30.25 pot ($1.51 rake)
      Final Board: Q 8 7 7 6
      MP mucked and won $28.74 ($13.99 net)
      Hero mucked Q T and lost (-$14.75 net)

      I raise turn in order to get max value from his draws and give me the opportunity to check back river for showdown value.

      I think this line si superior to call turn/fold river, call turn/call river.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Then rather do it right on the flop whilst his CB size is super-weak on such a drawy board and protecting it right there and take the initiative on you and decide what to do afterwards on the turn if he calls.

      Though if you do then not much to do on the river where both draws complete as FD/SD.

      Best Regards.
